White Oak Canyon -- goodbye winter??

A few weeks ago did a tough 8 mile trek, up the White Oak Canyon trail in Shenandoah, where the smaller falls were frozen, slogged through a snowy side trail, and down the steep, icy Cedar Run trail, where, notwithstanding microspikes and hiking poles, I fell twice.  Exhausting, but beautiful every which way I looked.

and more snow, at Great Falls, VA

The past two weekends I've hiked through Great Falls National Park, VA, and neighboring Riverbend park.  A late afternoon slush fest two weekends ago, and a very slick icy late morning last weekend.  With another 5-8 inches predicted for Thursday, I think there may be more snow to come!
